Imperfect health : the medicalization of architecture ( Book )
13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 185 libraries worldwide
As health becomes a central focus of political debate, are architects, urban designers, and landscape architects seeking a new moral and political agenda to address these concerns? Imperfect Health looks at the complexity of today's health problems juxtaposed with a variety of proposed architectural and urban solutions. Essays by Margaret Campbell, David Gissen, Carla C. Keirns, and Sarah Schrank deal with different aspects of the topic of health in the context of architecture such as: "An Architectural Theory of Pollution" and "Strange Bedfellows: Tuberculosis and Modern Architecture-How 'The Cure' Influenced Modernist Architecture and Design." This book is published in collaboration with the CCA, Montreal on the occasion of the exhibition Imperfect Health: The Medicalization of Architecture, curated by Giovanna Borasi, CCA Curator of Contemporary Architecture, and Mirko Zardini, CCA Director and Chief Curator
Some ideas on living in London and Tokyo : Stephen Taylor, Ryue Nishizawa by Stephen Taylor( Book )
10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 133 libraries worldwide
"A fundamental change is currently taking place in society: for the first time, half the world's population lives in urban areas. In this context, London and Tokyo provide interesting case studies for investigating the problems raised by living in a continually growing city. By examining the work of Ryue Nishizawa in Tokyo and Stephen Taylor in Lomlon, we may observe that the notion of a progressive homogenization of living conditions in the world's great cities is only an apparent phenomenon. The profound cultural differences that exist between these centres - reflecting different interpretations of the idea of proximity, privacy, and the relationship between inhabitants - inevitably inform the development of their projects and, consequently, the ways in which a community lives together. Taylor and Nishizawa have developed new ideas for living born of their respective cultures. Their innovative residential designs challenge conventional norms and offer approaches that simultaneously shape the life of the resilient and the face of the city."--Jacket
Journeys : how travelling fruit, ideas and buildings rearrange our environment ( Book )
11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 128 libraries worldwide
"Journeys explores architectural issues raised by increased global mobility. Stories by different authors, presented in a fictional framework, highlight key concepts critical to understanding the impact of the movement of people, animals, objects and ideas. The vagabondage of seeds. The transfer of knowledge and experience as people move from one place to another. The physical reconfiguration of communities. These are among the wide range of topics Journeys explores as it seeks to analyze and visually depict how these flows, encounters and migrations unexpectedly change society and our built environment"--Page 4 of cover
Other space odysseys : Greg Lynn, Michael Maltzan, Alessandro Poli by Greg Lynn( Book )
11 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 117 libraries worldwide
Today we are witnessing a renewed enthusiasm for space exploration, with scientific expeditions, satellite launches, and the emergence of space tourism pushing us to reconsider our relationship with our planet. Other Space Odysseys has nothing to do with Space Architecture or architecture in outer space. It is not a celebration of high-tech architecture and imagery or extreme physical and mental conditions. Instead, this book proposes a letting go of architecture understood as the production of -material goods in favour of architecture as the production of ideas. How can thinking about space lead to fresh perspectives on earth? Greg Lynn, Michael Maltzan and Alessandro Poli present different avenues for approaching this question. Their odysseys, real and virtual, ultimately promise a rediscovery of our own world
Gilles Clément - Philippe Rahm : environ(ne)ment : manières d'agir pour demain by Gilles Clément( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 113 libraries worldwide
"As it is no longer possible to consider the environment merely in terms of its potential for exploitation, it becomes increasingly difficult to determine the status of human beings with respect to nature. Today we are under pressure to reconsider our approach to growth, development, and comfort - which raises the spectre of energy consumption and the future of the earth's biodiversity. To address these issues requires a change of perspective - literally, an about-face - which takes the environment, and not human demands on our planetary resources, as the starting point for reflection. This volume presents the work of French landscape designer and gardener Gilles Clement and Swiss architect Philippe Rahm as two tactical approaches to the environment for tomorrow which focus not on technological or aesthetic problems, but rather ethical ones."--BOOK JACKET

The other architect : another way of building architecture ( Book )
8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and French and held by 55 libraries worldwide
"Considering case studies from the 1960s to today, this annotated collection of primary documents presents evidence of experimental venues, methods, and tools that architects have used to research and shape the urgent issues of their time. Many of these begin as improvisations on traditional forms like conferences, books, and university studios before developing in unexpected directions. Together, they reveal how architects can construct a cultural agenda without the intervention of built form."--Page 4 of cover

Sous forme de récits de fiction, différents auteurs nous présentent ici des concepts essentiels permettant d'appréhender les effets des déplacements de personnes, d'animaux, de biens et d'idées. La vagabondage des noix, le transfert de compétences et de pratiques ou encore, la réorganisation physique de communautés, ne sont que quelques-uns parmi les divers sujets abordés. Trajets analyse et rend visible comment ces flux, ces rencontres et ces migrations transforment de manière surprenante nos sociétés et notre environnement bâti"--Page 4 of cover

Studio Anne Holtrop by Anne Holtrop( Book )
1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
Until very recently, the young Dutch architect Anne Holtrop had only built a few small pavilions and various installations between art and architecture. Outside of conventional architectural circuit, and more related to the art installations, these extremely poetic pavilions consisted of small-scale spatial concepts and personal research on materials. However, the work of Holtrop took a leap of scale with two projects finished in 2015: the Museum Fort Vechten in Bunnik (near Utrecht, The Netherlands) and the National Pavilion of the Kingdom of Bahrain for the Milan Universal Exhibition of 2015. The former, a museum built within the enclosure of the New Hollandic Water Line fortifications, dug into the ground to create dark concrete walled galleries opening onto a courtyard artificial. The second, the National Pavilion of Bahrain is enclosed by a tall concrete wall that contains an interior maze of galleries, corridors and gardens
